If there is a place to stay in Monteverde at a decent price THAT would be the one! I feel really lucky I could have 2 nights out of 4 there...It was cleaner than clean, they have THE view on the peninsula and the communal spaces are well made and equiped so everybody can cook and eat without problem. The staff was also very friendly. A must reserve before go to Monteverde! Canadian couple

Had a very nice stay at cabinas vista al golfo! All the staff was very helpful and we felt as welcome as we could. Everything is nearby and you can get your tours booked right at the reception. 1 !

This was my favorite hostel while I was in Costa Rica. The facilities are beautiful and spacious, with lots of space to chill out and read or meet and chat with new people. It was easy to meet people and make friends. The views were amazing from common areas, lots of books and games to use. Breakfast was delicious and always filling. Staff were very helpful although at times hard to find. One morning we had no hot water, but our room was spacious and clean. I highly recommend this hostel!

They didn't clean my room everyday. The staff are nice, but sometimes they suggest the trip too much. The atmosphere in the hostel is very nice, you can meet a lot of people there.

This hostel, aesthetically, is nothing to write home about, but the atmosphere is amazing. The single common room is a fantastic place to meet new friends and find new adventures. This was one of the most interpersonally rewarding hostels I have stayed at. The community within the common room is what makes this place great. It's a little difficult to find your first time in the area, but is definitely worth the stay. Be sure to talk to your fellow hostel-mates and make friends!

Very clean hostel with a good atmosphere, good location. Only downside is that it's really really cold here in the evenings and the 'hot' water shower really isn't very hot. But the staff's really friendly and the free breakfast is so nice: fresh fruit and pancakes or scrambled eggs!

I really liked this place. It has 2 kitchens and the free breakfast was great addition to the start of our day. Monteverde has been one of my favorite places in Costa Rica. It is constantly windy, the land scape is beautiful and this hostel was a great base camp to come back to after an action packed day. It was close to everything.

Cool place..real chill vibe. They kept everything pretty clean and it was one of the best beds I've slept in. Location is just a few minutes walk from everything Downtown. The electric stove downstairs sucked so cooking was an issue but other than that no complaint. Staff was super helpful on travel and tours. Would def stay.again

The dorms are not the pace to stay if you want sleep. People were screaming until past midnight. A couple hooked up the bunk next to me.

Stayed in the four bed dorm room. Locker is provided but room key is not so you cant really lock your door. The whole place is very clean and well organized by professionals. Great view, spacious common place. Cant cook with downstairs electrical stove, have to go upstairs which is not very convenient. Very big bathroom but sometimes doesnt have hot water for shower.

Great staff! Very nice and friendly, guided us to getting around town, figuring out what activities we wanted to do. We opted for the rainforest with the 8 suspension bridges and walked around town to capture the views. Hostel was great, kitchen to use, great breakfast and very friendly cook/hostess! Great views, wished had more time to lounge around!

The location was perfect, had a great view without dishing out extra cash for other fancy hotels up the hill. The staff are friendly and helpful for setting up tours. It was a pleasant experience in an amazing area, there is no place like Monteverde.

Staff were extremely helpful. Great views as well. Little bit of a hike from the bus terminal, but the town is not that far and most of the tours pick you up at the hostel. Wasn't a major issue.
